Basic Goodness I: Who Am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human
with Doria Cross
All are welcome! (Meditation Instruction recommended)
The Basic Goodness Series is an introduction to the view of Shambhala, taught in an experiential way. The key difference between the Everyday Life series and the Basic Goodness series is that the Everyday Life classes emphasize personal transformation in everyday life while the Basic Goodness Courses emphasize the experiential study of view and meaning. The Basic Goodness Series is the next step after completing the Everyday Life Series OR it can be the first series of courses that you take.
The Basic Goodness Series is comprised of 3 courses. Each course has a question and a title.
1. Who am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human [6 classes or weekend program]
2. How can I help? The Basic Goodness of Society [6 classes or weekend program]
3. What is Real? The Basic Goodness of Reality [6 classes or weekend program]
Who am I? The Basic Goodness of Being Human
The first course asks the questions “Who am I?” and focuses on the sense of self. It includes teachings on basic goodness, selflessness, the arising of ego and cocoon, buddha nature, and the confidence of warriorship. We will practice contemplative investigations of the self, based upon the Foundations of Mindfulness.
